Excellent Overview of Sustainable Engineering
This textbook is an excellent starting point for anyone interested in sustainable engineering or the evolving field of industrial ecology. The book is catered to an upper undergraduate or beginning graduate engineering student, and offers a real overview of the multiple topics involved in sustainable engineering. Generally, each chapter is no longer than 20 pages (but there are over 20+ chapters), which allows the authors to cover multiple topics of sustainable engineering in a concise, yet still detailed manner. Each chapter offers an excellent list of suggested readings from which the authors pulled their information from, and all the graphs and tables are easy to understand and follow. Additionally, the chapters are to the point (as previously mentioned), and allow the reader to gain a wide range of knowledge concerning these exciting fields, without the information becoming too overwhelming. Highly recommended!

Okay book, a lot of editing mistakes
This book has pretty good content, however, there are a lot of editing mistakes with the graphics in this book. They are black and white and sometimes they are too dark to read.
